“Dark Ages” Is ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ meets ‘Starship Troopers’

DKAGES #1 FC FNL

Dan Abnett and I.N.J. Culbard, the team that brought you “The New Deadwardians”, has a new book on the horizon from Dark Horse Comics that is being described as, “Kingdom of Heaven meets Starship Troopers“. The sci-fi fantasy tale takes place in a medieval world when a troop of mercenaries encounter an ungodly creature from another realm. It sounds like it has some cosmic horror influence, and given Culbard’s adaptations of Lovecraft’s work, I’d bet my gold coins on it.

From the press release:
